The prospect of going through a surgical procedure on your knee, as well as the postoperative recovery, can be daunting for a patient. Knowing how to help as a caregiver can also be difficult. Here are some of the obstacles that people undergoing a surgical procedure on their knee joint may face and what a caregiver can do to help make the recovery process a little easier.

Arthritis in the knees can strike people as young as 45, with symptoms severe enough to limit activities and harm quality of life. What can be done about it?
An artifical intelligence system based on deep learning is feasible for detecting full-thickness anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears within the knee joint on magnetic resonance (MR) images, according to a study published online May 8 in Radiology: Artificial Intelligence.
In the largest clinical trial of its kind, researchers at Lawson Health Research Institute have shown that performing an additional surgical procedure called lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET) may reduce the risk of ACL re-injury in young athletes.
